Masters of the Masterclass. Saturday 19 March, 2022. 10.30am-12.00pm SOLD OUT

Hickson House Distillery, from the Rocks in Sydney, is sending its crack team to the Melbourne Festival for a gin masterclass with a difference. Two of the top names in the gin business - Mikey (Cocktail King) Enright and Tim Stones – a distiller of distinction will present the class to 24 guests.

Be welcomed with a Schibello Coffee and pancakes. Be seated to a culinary inspired gin cocktail made in front of you. Watch the process and learn from the master for take home tricks.

The 90 minute class will take you quickly around the world, plus looking at gin and cocktail trends in Australia. You will hear from Tim some of the gin-making secrets in particular behind his cellar door in Sydney. Where does he get his botanicals and what are they? How do you use botanicals in your gin at home?

Leave the class wiser with another cocktail in hand and transition straight into the Gin Festival starting at 12.00pm.

Some guests will win gorgeous prizes from sponsors ArtisanDrinks, Schibello Coffee and DrinksPlinks.

Masterclass: SOLD OUT
